Nicholas Daniel and Julius Drake - BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert

10 June 2020

Live music returned to BBC Radio 3 last week with the start of a new series of daily lunchtime concerts broadcast live from an empty Wigmore Hall in London. I enjoyed listening to the recital by Nicholas Daniel (oboe) and Julius Drake (piano) last Thursday, which included works by the English composer and actress Madeleine Dring as well as premieres of pieces written during the lockdown by Huw Watkins and Michael Berkeley, alongside music by Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt and Gerald Finzi. Andrew McGregor’s introductions to the pieces very effectively set them in context and it is great to be able to watch the concerts (live or later as recordings) on the Wigmore Hall website: You can also listen again on BBC Sounds at:
